Clever Ghostbuster’s Inspiration with our Guest Designer Catherine!

It’s so fun to see all of your clever and creative Fall and Halloween projects fill up the Awesome Autumn challenge gallery. Be sure to check them out and join the challenge by Sunday October 3rd at 11:59PM ET! Click HERE!

Our wonderful Guest Designer, Catherine is back today to inspire you with a Ghostbuster’s themed card!

 Catherine started this clever design by using Leafy Tree Backdrop and Stitched Tree Borders to create the dark and spooky background. The purple inked night sky adds to the spooky atmosphere.

For the Ghostbuster’s she used Car Critters and Tiny Friends. She got really creative and combined the circle window from Mushroom House with a ghost from Tiny Halloween to create the Ghostbuster’s emblem on the car! To finish adding all the fun Halloween details, she used Happy Haunting, Pick of the Patch, Happy Harvest and Spooky Village!

Thank you so much for sharing your awesome creativity with us for this challenge, Catherine! Your amazing projects have totally inspired me!

If you have been a past Guest Designer for us here at Lawn Fawnatics, we would love for you to grab this badge to post on your blog or other social media. Big thanks to all of our amazing Guest Designers!

A Super Happy Holiday Critter Card with Christy

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Happy Holiday Critters Challenge! I love making scene cards, and I combined so many different sets into this one. I used Beary Happy Holidays, Cheery Christmas, Mice on Ice, Holiday Helpers, Yeti or Not, and Simply Celebrate Winter. I colored all my images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the background, I used a piece of bokeh paper from the Snow Day Remix 6×6 pad for the sky. I added stitching detail to the edges with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, then added some tree silhouettes with the Stitched Tree Border. Overtop of that, I layered two Stitched Hillside Borders, one glued flat to the card, and the other popped up with foam tape.

I cut out an icy pond using the Bayou Backdrop and heat embossed a little swirl of ice skating tracks from Mice on Ice. I added that to the lower left corner of the card. Then I added my images into the scene with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape.

The little snowman was from Simply Celebrate Winter. I just masked him off from the rest of his friends when stamping and used the dies to cut out most of him, and my Cutter Bee scissors to trim down the rest.


To finish things off, I added a sentiment stamped in Bubblegum Ink and trimmed out with an Everyday Sentiment Banner, and a bit of Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle.

I also finished off the inside using Simply Celebrate Winter, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

The Happy Holiday Critters challenge will be open until Sunday December 6 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy!

Jessica’s Happy Halloween Inspiration!

Our Halloween/Fall Inspiration challenge will close this Sunday, October 18th at 11:59PM ET. Happy Crafting Fawnatics Friends!


Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Halloween/Fall inspiration challenge!  I used three of the photos as inspiration for my spooky scene today!

To start I blended black soot distress oxide ink over the cloud stencil on a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock to create my sky.  I used a blending brush to keep my blending very light.  I die-cut a circle from Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock and blended squeezed lemonade and mustard seed distress oxide ink over the circle to create my moon.  I splattered it with water and blotted off the excess to give it a little texture.  Next I die-cut the Stitched Tree Borders from Black Licorice cardstock and the Little Town Border from Black Licorice and Sunflower cardstock.  I adhered my moon to the background and then added the tree and town.  Then I inlaid the little windows and doors to recreate the skies and glowing windows from the inspiration photo!

Next I stamped images from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters, Costume Party, and Happy Harvest with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I added a few accents with a white gel pen and then added them to my scene with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape.  I finished the card with a sentiment from Costume Party stamped and heat-embossed with white embossing powder!

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
